About

To avoid dangerous climate change and adapt to it, profound changes in the way we live and conduct economic activities are needed, which requires large-scale and innovative ways of funding for climate change mitigation and adaptation efforts alike. Under the Paris Agreement, countries have developed Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) which need to be implemented, not least with support of climate finance mechanisms such as the Green Climate Fund (GCF).

Sector experts playing a crucial role in the implementation of NDCs, they require specific information about climate finance opportunities enabling them to make informed decisions on whether climate finance is an option for financing specific sector projects, measures or programmes.

The overall objective of CliFiT4SE is to impart sector experts (in ministries, public and private entities engaged in supplying public goods, and other entities, including civil society, private sector entities as well as donors and implementing entities) specific knowledge that allows them to judge if in a specific situation, climate finance is an option for financing specific sector projects, measures or programmes, and to present their activities convincingly to the climate change community.
